Winners & Losers : Battles, Retreats, Gains, Losses, and Ruins from the Vietnam War Paperback / softback

Description

Based on interviews with both Americans and Vietnamese, Winners and Losers is Gloria Emerson's powerful portrait of the Vietnam War.

From soldiers on the battlefield to protesters on the home front, Emerson chronicles the war's impact on ordinary lives with characteristic insight and brilliance.

Today, as we approach the fiftieth anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin incident, much of the physical and emotional damage from that conflict-the empty political rhetoric, the mounting casualties, and the troubled homecomings of shell-shocked soldiers-is once again part of the American experience.

Winners and Losers remains a potent reminder of the danger of blindly applied American power, and its poignant truths are the legacy of a remarkable journalist.
